My Borrowed Child

I spent the day with my favourite little person today, my nephew Giovanni.

I picked him up around 10:30 a.m..  We stopped at Robin's so I could get a coffee.  The cashier thought that Gio was so cute that she passed a free doughnut through the window for him.

After a bit of playing inside, and a long game of catch outside, we walked to the park for a picnic.  

We had stopped at the store earlier so that Giovanni could pick out whatever he wanted for the picnic.  He chose sushi (no surprise there), watermelon, sparkling water, cheese, and some chocolate for dessert.

He saw quite the dance when he said, "Auntie, you have a GIANT spider on you."  Yeah, he wasn't lying.  Once I came to calmed down, we continued to enjoy our sushi.  We polished off most of the sushi and watermelon, but had no room left for the cheese or dessert.

While walking back home Giovanni spotted an injured butterfly (moth?) with a burned wing.  He was devastated

The wing was crispy  :-(  We tried to find a safe spot in the grass where he wouldn't get trampled.

Throughout the day we played FOUR(!?) different types of hockey.

We had fun at the Science Center.

And we played a round of mini golf.

To top off a fun-filled day, we had a little bit of fro yo at Menchies.

After dropping him off at home, I grabbed a pizza and pint with my dad at Bushwakker.

Okay, time for bed!

Oh my gosh, what a fun day! I love your picnic basket, by the way! What a fun day with your nephew. I love whisking my nephews away for an afternoon. I tried to do that a couple of times a year when I lived in Minneapolis. When I am at the lake in August I plan on taking the older nephews out for ice cream at some point. I can't wait. :)

He chose sushi?? That kid and I would get along well, ha ha. Poor butterfly, too. Also, the four different kinds of hockey is not only impressive, it's so Canadian. :) Air hockey is my favorite! You guys had a busy day!
